80 core teraflop CPU from Intel

Intel's APAC corporate communications manager Nick Jacobs says just ten years ago, the first computer to benchmark at one Teraflops was the ASCI Red. This comprised nearly 10,000 Pentium Pro CPUs each running at 200MHz and used up 500 kiloWatts of power. In comparison, the new Teraflops research chip uses a mere 62 Watts.

The chip mainly developed in Intel India research labs brings a new era to the field of supercomputing.
The eighty-core research chip, running at one Teraflops, was announced at the Integrated Solid State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) in San Francisco today.

The chip gives you 1.01 teraflops at 3.16GHz and what happens if the chip is over clocked to 5.7GHz? yes you get nearly two teraflops, 1.81. But Intel says this increases the energy intake and it is much better to scale the chip in core wise rather tan increasing the frequency
